Comments

I stumbled onto this slide this afternoon on Hoyt Peak.  I believe it occurred Monday afternoon as I was in the area that morning. It ran down through the trees at the bottom.  There is another smaller fresher slide in the second pic lookers right.  Looks this pocket pulled out yesterday but possibly today just before I arrived around 1:30.
